Just Lion Around, by Victor Howard

I shot this on the photo on the Walt Disney World Animal Kingdom Kilimanjaro Safari ride. The lion raised his head to look across the rock and I was struck by the power and majesty of his presence. It was exciting to capture a king surveying his kingdom.

Victor is an amateur photographer who took up photography as a hobby to expand his perspective and develop his creative side. What started as a learning opportunity for him in 2007 has evolved into a passion. He loves to capture the beauty of the world and people around him. He enjoys exploring different styles and techniques while developing his craft. Victor believes it is important to capture the shot as perfect as possible at the time of the shoot. He believes nothing replaces the learning accomplished by simply taking pictures; and he likes to spend time every week with his camera in hand. He uses a plan, shoot, review, adjust approach while photographing a particular subject to continuously improve a shot.

    Fantastic photo, unfortunately, the edge looks blurred and washed out. Personally, the points of light in the background are erring. I prefer it more crisp and with less light, but that’s a matter of taste.
